    10 Pumpkin Projects to Sew for Fall

    10 Pumpkin Projects to sew for fall It’s time to spice things up with pumpkin projects that are easily doable before Halloween and last long after into the fall season. Pumpkin Carving Ok, so this one doesn’t involve sewing. But, you CAN use your sewing supplies to help carve adorable pumpkins with ease! Simply use Sulky Stick ‘n Carve™ to transfer your pumpkin design straight to the gourd, and cut right through it.

    Pumpkin Carving Tools for Success (even with kids!)

    Pumpkin Carving Tools for Success Pumpkin carving tools are made for a reason – carving a pumpkin is hard work! From scraping out all the guts to carving the actual jack-o-lantern, it’s exhausting work–especially if you’re carving more than one or creating an elaborate scene.
